YAY Joab!! Go ask in the stores right there what they saw. Take pictures for us when you can.

I had already posted the exact location. The building's name is The Bencoolen 180.

just spotted this on twitter......


stephanietang Spotted AmaZing race crew at s'pore!! Bugis near temple. http://tweetphoto.com/6514943

Hope this helps!   Wondering if other TAR versions use the same colors as the US version

The place shown in the picture is on Bencoolen Link at the corner with Waterloo St in downtown Singapore. Singapore (City/Country) is not far away from Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia.

Here is the street view:

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=bugis+temple&sll=1.301135,103.853534&sspn=0.005449,0.009602&ie=UTF8&radius=0.33&filter=0&rq=1&ev=zo&hq=bugis+temple&hnear=&ll=1.301124,103.853524&spn=0,359.990398&t=h&z=17&layer=c&cbll=1.301139,103.853525&panoid=EGwVBbrVfprbvWSVsnsTyg&cbp=13,353.6,,0,-2.34

TAR Latin America, which doesn't go to Asia, uses blue-black-blue flags.

They could be waiting nearby for teams, or it could be finished. In any case, people will have seen something. Ask for team descriptions.

Keep asking. Maybe the teams had to take the ice cream thing somewhere and sell some??

Keep looking!!!

Singapore River... I always had the thought of looking for the pit stop using the GMax Reverse Bungee or the SG Flyer...  :cmaslol

ETA: Surely TAR don;t just pick random people to hand over clues, is there no way to contact the main company that sells the said ice cream?

No, when we had pics like this in Bangkok, teams were there a couple of hours later. The shot was filmed first. Teams could still be coming.

Suggest places for a Pitstop nearby??

Marina Barrage maybe good since is far from the city and can be seen from Singapore Flyer, assumed teams go up Singapore Flyer to locate the flag..

I'm slanting to the idea that the picture was caught a day or two but posted just right now (it's very sunny when it is filmed, but with our s'porean friends telling that the weather in bugis is rainy today)... but anything could happen!

Will this map help for nearby pit stops?

He is staying for now...there is no ice cream man right now. Hopefully that was the Phil set up shot and teams are still to come.

But his phone is dying,  :( but might be a good thing as I need to take up a collection anyway! :lol:

For a pit stop I'd go right away to the gardens at the Raffles Hotel.
